Velvet Revolver Newcastle Arena 15th January 2005

Velvet Revolver were formed in 2002 by ex Guns N’ Roses bandmates Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass), and Matt Sorum (drums), Dave Kushner (from Wasted Youth on second guitar) and ex Stone Temple Pilot Scott Weiland (vocals).
They recorded a soundtrack single for the Hulk called “Set Me Free” in 2003 and released their second single “Slither” in 2004, along with their debut album “Contraband”. They toured the UK for the first time in 2005, calling at Newcastle Arena with support from the Datsuns. Their music was a mix of STP and G N’ R which brought a “sense of danger and beauty to modern rock.” A respectable sized rock crowd gathered in the Arena for the gig, which was an enjoyable experience and a chance to see Slash up relatively close.
